So right now I am totally trying to learn everything I can about another Brent year- this time 1982. Been trying to ask everybody for their "shows with stories" from this year. were you seeing The Dead then? what do you remember?

totally cool, was that when I was over at Deadhook and asking the same question, I found out that someone who posts there wrote a review for an 82 show in Deadbase.

anybody ever write a review for Deadbase? or do the Deadhead Survey?

OLD NJ,

I haven't seen you around here in a while. I'm not sure if you're into torrents but a nice sounding soundboard has been found of the great Rutgers show from 5-15-81 (thank you Charlie Miller!). It's available over at etree.

Also add 4-14-82 to your spot-on list of 82

Dear Mr Dlyons

Im not into the BT but I would love a copy of 5-15-81
How do I contact you to spin me a copy? I have some great shell case cover PDF's for the show as your reward for kindness.

Thanks

Hadn't seen the band in 82 but it was a show from this year that got me hooked.

A friend was making tapes for me in 84-85 after I had heard some at his place and this was the second or third one I got. Second set only but I was blown away. I was shocked how different this sounded then the records I had heard and knew then the only way to listen to the band was from tapes like this. I still have my copy of this tape, the cover is faded so bad that you can't actually read it.

Having been a '68-'78 head for the longest time, I've really taken a liking to '82 lately, among other post-Godchaux years. What turned me on was the Crazy Fingers from 7/29/82 at Red Rocks. The rest of the show ain't too shabby either.

I've also been diggin' a couple of major festival dates they played that year--the Us Festival on 9/5, especially the opening Playin' > Shakedown (what?!). The Playin' is kind of short, but the combo rages nicely. Here's a link to the stream, since I haven't been able to find it via Google or the Archive's weak-ass search engine: http://www.archive.org/details/gd82-09-05.sbd-patched.warner.5490.sbeok.shnf

The other festival date is the Montego Bay show on 11/26, with the infamous Scarlet > Fire at sunrise. Pretty snazzy, I must say.

This probably sounds obsessive, but I must reiterate: the Crazy Fingers I mentioned is just incredible! Easily my favorite version (next to 8/13/75 of course) of one of my favorite Garcia/Hunter compositions. Jerry's guitar solo is just DRIPPING with pathos. FEEL IT. And the Spanish-type jam that typically followed Crazy Fingers is real nice in that version.

There are probably better overall shows from '82, but this is easily one of my treasured 'Jerry moments' from that year.

Subject: Cameron Indoor 4.2.82

Lots of sweet Jerry tunes here, candyman, IMOBTR,Sugaree etc...Bobby was good Never much a rooster fan,they we overplaying it then, Phil steady and subsonic as ever. , It was a cozy gymnasium atmosphere with tons of local and tour heads outside enjoyimg the fine NC Spring. Mickey was seen at window and the review earlier is true, alot of "miracle tickets" happen that night. I remember how laid back the scene was. Above average first set and decent second set I had an excellent Aud until this SBD.Once again THANKS for the awesome versions of Dead shows on this site!

Another great show, they were a bit looser than the night before(Cameron Indoor), people freakin on Jerry being on the Right side and Phil on the left.first set looks, sounded and contnues to sound great thanks to this fine recording. Killer Set II, Performances of Scarlet>Fire, NFA were unique and well received, this is a great recording that does justify how much fun we were having out there,Stella does not disapoint.
